at the u.n. in geneva. we fought hard for that. but think of the new markets that would open up and the bridges between people that peace would build him a think of the flood of foreign investment and business opportunities that would come to israel and how that would change the lives of everyday people throughout the region. fischer, the former governor of the bank of israel said, a peace agreement with the palestinians could boost israel's gdp in a short period of time by as much as 6%. israel would also enjoy a normal peaceful relationship the moment this agreement is signed with 22 arab nations and 35 muslim all.ns -- 57 countries in it is not beyond our imagination to envision that a new order could be established in the middle east, in which countries like jordan, morocco, a newly independent palestine and an internationally recognized jewish state of israel joined together to promote stability and peace. new from the start that if his young state were to do more than just survive, if israel were to succeed, it would need more than just strong defenses. he said israel woul

existing u.n. resolutions and previous violations by iran of its international obligations, that we don't recognize such a right, and if, by the way, negotiations break down, there will be no additional international recognition that's been obtained. so this deal goes away and we're back to where we were before the geneva agreement, subject -- and iran will continue to be subject to all the sanctions that we put in place in the past and we may seek additional ones. but i think what we have said is we can envision a comprehensive agreement that involves extraordinary constraints and verification mechanisms and intrusive inspections, but that permits iran to have a peaceful nuclear program. now, in terms of specifics, we know that they don't need to have an underground, fortified facility like fordow in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they certainly don't need a heavy-water reactor at arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they don't need some of the advanced centrifuges that they currently possess in order to have a limited, peaceful nuclear program. and so the quest
is deeply militarily involved is the height of hypocracy. yesterday, the u.n. rights, said they are guilty and the highest responsible. >> that's the biggest form of extremism instruments having and seeing in syria that is responsible for the deaths of over 100,000 people. so it's the height of hypocracy for the foreign minister to complain about he knew treme whichl his government is backing the most extremist players in syria today. >> the charm offensive continues. are people buying it and whether it will work? we will stay on top of it. i hope you will join us again. great having you on the set. >>> moving on to another member of what former approximately george w. bush called the axis of evil, north korea where the country's second most powerful leader appears to have disappeared while a new hostage seems to make a coerced con sfeings. according to south korea's intelligence service, the number 2 after his nephew, kim jun un has been dropped from power after two deposit treys executed for corruption and anti-party activities. meanwhile, relatives say they are deeply worried about 85-y

that the president has announced ignores not only u.s. law but ignores the u.n. sanctions that are in place. and it also ignores the fact that iran has not made any concessions in this area in the last 30 years. it also ignores the position that this deal puts israel in, one that is untenable and more impossible than any i have seen in my lifetime. the naivity of this administration in dealing with iran is something that is simply breathtaking. mr. speaker, i would just suggest to you that if iran gains nuclear weapons, we will need a new calendar. it will change our reality in the world that much. and i would say to you that while there's still time, we need to act. d you know, mr. speaker, there is that moment in the life of every problem when it is big enough to be seen and still small enough to be addressed but in terms of iran's nuclear weapons pursuit, that window is closing quickly. and whatever this body can do, whatever this president can do to prevent iran from gaining a nuclear weapons capability must be done soon because soon they will have the ability to ignore our treaties and

. with respect to the pakistan, there was never the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented. and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy. and that's why you know, we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i've repeatedly said when people ask why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, you know, we're being naive, what i try to describe them is not the choice between this deal and the ideal. but the choice between this deal and other alternatives. i mean, if i had an option, if we could create an option in which iran eliminated every single nut and bolt of their nuclear program and foreswore the possibility of ever having a nuclear program and for that matter got rid of all its military capabilities, i would take it. but. >> last question. >> but sorry. haim, i want to make sure everybody understands. that will particular option is not available. as a consequence, we have
